Saw a picture last night of a buddy's "first ever fish" from Langara Island Lodge.

The pic's don't do it justice as I think the "rookie" didn't realize what he had done; picture was the fish half out of the net in the boat and the only "comparison" of size in the picture is the toe of a rubber boot.

But.....here are the measurements.....first time fishing....20 minutes into salt fishing.......length 65.5 inches; girth 49.5 inches. Caught on an anchovie in the Charlottes......about 60' of water.....don't know the "flasher and head" as my moron friend really had no clue what was going on until the guide said "HOLY f***.....THAT'S A PIG".

I have bashed him to provide me with a better picture.....and hope to be able to post. :wallbash:

Sounds like he hooked "Hogito", I'd really like to see that pic. What did it weigh in at?

Don't have an "official" weight as he actually released it. They took measurements and the lodge will give him "official' notification of weight based on length and girth; he receives in lieu of releasing it either 50 lbs of fish or an engraved Islander MR2.

He is pretty chilled about it (being a non-fisherman) but it apparently has the measurments that may make it very near the top in weight of fish brought into Langara Island Lodge.
